Preventative care can save you time, money and inconvenience in the dental chair
In conjunction with regular check-ups at our Cairns dental practices, it is important to maintain a proper at home care program to actively prevent the development of oral concerns.
Your daily oral hygiene routine should include:
- Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day. This should be performed with a soft bristled tooth brush. Position your brush at a 45 degree angle and brush in a gentle circular motion along all surfaces of your teeth and along the gum line.
- Flossing your teeth every single day. This is done to remove deposits of plaque from the surfaces of teeth that cannot be reached by brushing alone.
There are also some preventative treatments you may wish to consider to support the health of your child’s smile such as fissure sealants.
